Depends if you include Wisconsin and NE Indiana. They also have a large fanbase in Iowa and draw well with visiting team fans. Heck most summer series against St. Louis are about 30% or more Cardinals' fans. That's before you factor in casual tourism. I agree the number is probably high, but like it or not Wrigley is a place of destination for tourists too.
